Consultation on TSO network code obligations

Published: 02 October 2020

Consultation opened on 02 October 2020. Consultation closed 04 December 2020.

Summary

The purpose of this paper is to identify the obligations placed on the Transmission System Operators of Northern
Ireland (Moyle Interconnector Limited (MIL), System Operator for Northern Ireland (SONI)) by the specific regulations within each of the network codes (RfG, DC, HVDC and SOGL).

Today we are publishing a consultation paper  to identify the obligations placed on the Transmission System Operators (TSO) of Northern Ireland (Moyle Interconnector Limited (MIL), System Operator for Northern Ireland (SONI)) by the specific regulations that must be complied with, set out within each of the network codes (RfG, DC, HVDC and SOGL).

Where more than one TSO exists within a member state (as is the case in Northern Ireland) there is a clause within each network code, which allows Member States to provide responsibility to specific TSOs to comply with the code obligations.

Annex 1 identifies the multiple TSO clauses within each of the codes along with our recommendation on the Member State TSO that should comply with each section of the code.

(Annex 1 has been updated to only include SOGL, RFG, DCC and HVDC obligations).

Responses should be emailed to Jody.OBoyle@uregni.gov.uk and  kenny.McPartland@uregni.gov.uk

Copies of all documents will be made available in large print, Braille, audio cassette and a variety of relevant minority languages if required.
